DEVCO has experience in a full array of Civil Engineering projects. The key to our success is project management style. We believe in an approach that is all encompassing; an approach which allows us to be responsible for a project from conception to completion. To do this, we take the time to understand the owner’s objective, the construction process, and the regulations which bind them. We can then create “constructable” designs. By this we mean that we take our extensive knowledge of contracting and anticipate what and where the problem areas might be. By thinking like a contractor and avoiding problems, we create designs that are logical and efficient for the client’s objectives as well as the project budget.
As part of our service, we can assist with property acquisition and land use issues, such as wetlands investigation or mitigation, environmental assessment processes and zoning issues. We coordinate with state and local agencies, owners, developers, potential contractors and/or architects. Prior to starting a project, we can help prepare project schedules and budgets then follow through with construction bidding drawings and documents. DEVCO can provide project administration through coordination of pay requests, project change orders, material testing and site inspections during the construction phase. At the close of a project, we can prepare as-constructed verification and documentation and obtain governmental agency sign-offs.
To maintain this level of service and expertise, DEVCO takes full advantage of the technological capabilities available to the industry. Our current Survey and Civil Engineering software is truly state of the art and gives us the capability to produce project information in many forms ranging from tabular data to 3-dimensional representations. It is part of our on-going effort to provide the best resources for the benefit of our clients.
